"Judge says Kaczynski can't donate papers
SACRAMENTO, CALIF. - Una-bomber Theodore Kaczynski has no right to donate his writings to a university for research, a federal judge ruled.
U.S. District Judge Garland E. Burrell Jr. ruled Friday that the government may keep the documents indefinitely.
Burrell overruled a magistrate's earlier finding that the papers must be returned to Kaczynski so he could donate them to a university, or be sold to raise money for his victims.
The University of Michigan was interested in Kaczynski's writings for its extensive Labadie research library of social protests. Kaczynski, whose bombs killed three people, holds advanced degrees in mathematics from U-M.
